The Clumber Spaniel is the largest among the spaniel breeds standing only 43 to 51 centimetres at the withers but weighing from 55 to 85 pounds. It resembles the Sussex Spaniel when it comes to its shape. However, the Clumber is heavy-boned with a massive melting head. It has soulful eyes with a dopey expression, distinguished deep stop, square nose and large vine-like ears.
This dog breed has a body that is rectangular in proportion (longer than its height). Since it has short legs, it tends to slightly roll while walking but with an easy going pace. The Clumber Spaniel has a silky coat that lies flat to its body. The ears, legs and chest are moderately feathered while sporting a frill around the neck.
The Clumber’s coat comes in two colour types: a plain white body with either a lemon or orange markings. They are average shedders, but there are some days they will shed heavily. To keep loose hair to a minimum, daily brushing is required. Bathing can be done when necessary especially if the coat already holds a significant amount of dirt.
While grooming, don't forget to check for sores or signs of infection such as redness and tenderness. Preventive measures must also be taken to ensure that a Clumber does not develop ear infections. Gently wipe the ear with moistened cotton ball using a vet-recommended solution. Also, take good care of its teeth by brushing it twice or thrice a week to remove tartar and prevent gum disease and bad breath.
